Great value and service

Ate here based on a recommendation and returned 4 days later. Location is in downtown. On first arrival without a booking we were shown to a nice table in a very bustling and busy restaurant for a Monday night. Ordered two "Baseball" sirloins which the menu stated could at best be cooked medium... read more

This was the fourth time I've visited the Keg Halifax and come away disappointed. We keep going back becasue we've been loyal Keg customers over the years and hope that things will improve. The quality of the steak and the food has just not been the same over the past two years. The escargot had the tiniest mushrooms when they... More

Despite a few tables available we were seated at an undesirable table and we had to pressure them to move us. The waiter was inexperienced and a bit clumsy. Food standard for the keg but was good. The mini mango dessert was surprisingly generous and apetizing for only 3$. With so many exceptionnal local restaurants nearby in the same price... More

A friend and I had supper here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.Staff very friendly and informative.We both enjoyed our meals and would certainly go again.We had never been to a keg restaurant before and went because it was close to our hotel.

The service was very great, fast and polite. The food was very good. But the price was quite high. $101.00 for two people with one drink and a pop. No appetizer or desert.

We just returned from a visit to the Keg. I ordered a shrimp cocktail and an 8 ounce sirloin with baked potato. My colleague ordered an 8 ounce sirloin with baked potato. My shrimp came and the smell was horrible. They were, as the waitress admitted, very bad. We returned those. My steak ordered well done came and it was... More

We chose the Keg to treat our granddaughter and her fiance to dinner between games of the Men's World Curling Championships in Halifax. It had been quite a few years since we had eaten at this particular restaurant but did eat at one in Ontario last Sept. We had made a reservation so didn't have much of a wait at... More

After at least a decade of hearing about The Keg last night was the first time we have eaten there and we were very impressed. Decor is intimate and cozy but not cramped. Food was very good. Our waiter Chris was superb; attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The whole experience was excellent and we would definitely go again and highly... More

With some food chains, I find the food can taste packaged but this is not the case with the Keg. We had calamari as well as a baked Brie to start. Delicious and I enjoyed the dipping sauces included with both. The steak was cooked to perfection and you can't say that about all restaurants ! With the appetizers and... More

The Keg has been a well liked downtown eatery for near 35 years. We were in Moncton in the Summer 2013 and we ate at their Keg. It was a terrible meal. Food, service and ambiance were awful. My last visit to the Keg Halifax was at least six years ago. Having a KEG gift card for 15 months sitting... More
